My last show was the second night in St. Louis in '95. It was the first night since the death threat against Jerry that they turned off the house lights for the second set. There was some discussion out in the lot about the weirdness that was going on with the gate crashing earlier in the tour, the death threat, and the deck collapse at the campground the day before. All things considered I think it was a good show with a pretty good setlist.

Mississippi Half Step, Take Me To The River, Big Boss Man, Me & My Uncle-> Big River, Brown Eyed Women, Cassidy

Denver Dec. 2 and 3 1992. Sucked. Crappt seats, crappy sound, depressing. I'm surprised they lasted three more years.

On another note as cheesy as it sounds it was Truckin from this show that made me make my final descision to move up to Alaska. We were already kickin the idea around but the line " sometimes the cards aint worth a dime if you dont lay em down" sealed the deal for me.

A nice Estimated is about all there really is to this show worth remembering about. Should have stopped'93, but in reality, when the lights went down before a show, that sense of excitement was still there even then. Although by '95, you were lucky to get one good diamond in the rough on any given night. Gone are the days.

Portland Meadows 5.28.95
So hot my future wife passed out from heat exhaustion. The freakshow in the first aid tent might just have been more entertaining than the concert itself.

I'm genuinely curious about what the heck the band may have been thinking with set lists like that.

Or this:

10/7/94, Set 2 Victim Or The Crime-> Samba In The Rain, Foolish Heart-> Corinna-> Drums-> Space-> The Last Time-> That Would Be Something-> Morning Dew, E: Johnny B. Goode

These late set lists almost read like a commentary. "Way to go home? Oh, not quite, I guess ... but soon. Very soon." "Is this the last time? Well, that would be something."

Were they just incredibly out of touch with the audience, or was the audience actually enthusiastic about this stuff? (I was out of touch by then and didn't see shows post-92, so I have no sense of it myself.)

I believe their thinking was the same as it always was. They played what they felt like playing. There were other periods in their history where setlists were filled with alot of newer tunes. Especially early on. i think those instances were more readily accepted because the songs were good songs. In the 90s, all the new songs, excepting maybe one or two, were crap songs.

just one man's opinion of course!!

Here's another head scratching what were they thinking setlist that I saw in Shoreline... just get a load of that smokin' second set!!!

05-22-93 Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, Ca. (Sat)
1: Half Step, Rooster, B. E. Women, Broken Arrow, Supplication, Stagger Lee, Promised
2: Foolish Heart, Woman Smarter, Ship Of Fools, Corinna> Drumz> Last Time> Stella Blue> Saturday Night E: IFTL
final/last "Supplication": 10-31-84 [597]

Actually the concert is stronger than what it is on paper. Half Step is worth a listen. And the Supplication breakout brought big cheshire smiles to our faces.

My last show was Highgate, VT summer of 1994. Had an amazing time, they pulled out a decent set list that included a New Speedway I'd always wanted to hear, but performance wise the show was a typical dud for those final years.

AltheaRose, I just realized I'm close to your timezone. I'm running a sales conference in Hong Kong this week. Considering Chengdu next year. Ever been up there? Somewhat your neck of the woods but a ways away. We host the PacRim meeetings in China cause it's easier for everyone to get into China than the Chinese to get out. Wish we could go to Nepal, but I'm not sure we have any customers there, I haven't noticed Nepal for being known for technology

Whatever you sell, I'm sure we get the cheap Chinese copies of your stuff here. And Nepal is pretty good at technology; when those cheap copies break, they can keep them running forever here! It would probably be pretty decent at technology and a big outsourcing place if there was 24/7 electricity. Heck, even 20/7.

Never been to China; Seoul and Bangkok, but not China. Lots of Chinese tourists here these days, though. They come down the street in lines, with some guy leading them with little flags. Very different than the US/Euro/Israeli backpackers. Not many Chinese have dreads.

"Not many Chinese have dreads." Too funny. Yeah, the backpackers are a different sort, in a good way. I was in Krakow, Poland a couple weeks ago and saw a group leader walking down the street with a flag and all the tourists following behind like ducklings, each wearing the same shirt.

Quite a difference going from a bone dry -1 Celsius to a humid 27 degrees.

2009 when it was The Dead.Warren Haynes convinced me he could play w/ anyone or any band .They opened w/ U.S.Blues and all I remember is that the drums were miked extremely well.I left before the encore.After seeing multiple New Years Eve shows,Winterland, Oakland Colosium.Kaiser Aud, Oakland Arena,G.G.PARK,The Orpheum,The Warfield,Spectrum,
MSG,Fillmore East,Spartan Stadium how could anyone ever try to compare what I saw in 2009 to what I saw from the 70s on.You can't, even the shows I documented as garbage still meant more then a money making venture of The Dead.very dissapointing.
